My virtual hosts lines:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
    DocumentRoot /www/docs/example.com
    ServerName example.com
    ErrorLog logs/example.com-error_log
    CustomLog logs/example.com.com-access_log common

And when I apache restart (sudo apachectl -k stop) get this error:

Warning: DocumentRoot [/www/docs/example.com] does not exist

I've checked some ways:

All files and directories permissions is OK, everything 755. I think, maybe this error about SeLinux and disable it. But not working. Still same error.

How can I fix this problem?

The directory /www/docs/example.com definitely exists? –  pjc50 Nov 5 '13 at 11:50
Not exist. Created this directory by manuel but same error. –  user1213807 Nov 5 '13 at 11:56

You have to escape the . symbol. Try this instead:

DocumentRoot /www/docs/example\.com
